The next and last two sounds he would hear would be a whoosh and a bang to end the flight ........... instead of that bloody bugle call.

Does beg the question though whether Lukashenko is enough of a barmpot to order one of his fighters to down a commercial airliner registered in another country.

Don't spect the Ryanair pilot was all that keen to find out Big Grin after all, I don't suppose there were that many that thought he was enough of a barmpot to basically hijack a Ryanair flight from Greece to Lithuania.

How do we know for sure they hadn't put a bomb on the plane just in case it refused to land?
